Raw Food Bites Back: When Carrots Attack

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

You’re going to laugh, but please not too loud. ;)

It seems, while biting down on a HUGE carrot, it somehow slid down and cut the gum in front of my lower teeth. Now that’s a raw food hazard you don’t hear every day.  

Of course, dental care is often discussed among raw foodists, and products like tooth powder proliferate to solve the problem. That’s not the case here, however. In fact, my dentist was just complimenting me on my healthy, pink gums!

In other words, this was just a freak accident, but an expensive one for sure, requiring as it did a soft tissue graft at the periodontist. Ouch.

I’m making lemonade out of this lemon though and am currently on day four of an 8-day self-styled liquid raw cleanse/healing. Not juices, but smoothies and soups, etc..

Stay tuned for the compilation. I hope to publish it sometime in the next couple months under the Raw Done Light series. I have to crunch the numbers and format everything first.

I’m convalescing quite nicely without pain meds. No vicodin for me! :P Heck, I even refused the double-strength ibuprofen they proffered at the office while I was still numbed up.

You may notice a new icon at the bottom of the sidebar. It means the author link on your comments will now be followed. That is, they’ll receive “link love” from this blog. I’ve set it up to wait a day before the nofollow tag is automatically removed. That’ll give me time to remove any obvious spam.
